Harwood Island Hall

The Harwood Island Hall is a unique structure as it mostly sits over the waters of the Clarence River.

  1. Now, that is interesting. Do they still have to pay land taxes, if it is mostly not on land?!

  2. Yes -maybe it is like a houseboat - no property tax.

  3. Was there more to the sign after that TRUST? or should you trust it will be safe inside?

  4. I'm wondering what the trust is all about. Are we to trust that there's a floor so we won;t fall through into the water? :))

  5. I like the comments on 'trusting' it won't fall into the river. In Australia a Trust is a non-paying State Government appointed position where a group of people are given the job to look after a community building or piece of land (usually a recreation facility). Normally they have to find the money for upkeep and improvements.

  9. Very unusual indeed. I wonder if the river was high when they built the hall, surely not?
